Blah, Blah, Blah

Been away from this blog for a bit. Just been running. Getting back into the right space in my mind to feel stoked about my runs each day. For the most part the running's been good. I was sick for over a week so that set me back a bit but I'm feeling healthy now and typically feeling pretty strong. We've had much less snow this year than any of the past winters I've spent in Juneau so I'm pretty excited about the hope that I might be able to start running up on mountain ridges most everyday as soon as sometime in April. Even now I've been getting up into the mountains (on snowshoes) at least once a week.

I was supposed to be heading up to Anchorage to run a 50k this weekend but that's not going to happen now. Mostly I was interested in going because my friend Dan was going to go run his first Ultra. I thought it would be fun to go up and share that experience with him, especially since this race (Little Su) was also my first ultra ever when I ran it 4 years ago. It would have been a nice feeling to come full circle back to that race. As it played out though Dan has a bit of an injury and with the sickness I had last week it just started to seem really silly to spend $500 on airfare to go run a 50k which I wasn't viewing as much more than an ambitious training run.

So that leaves my next race just over 4 weeks away: Way Too Cool 50k. It'll be interesting to see if I can run such a fast, short race effectively. Right now I have no speed. When I go on runs lately it takes me about 90 minutes to feel warmed up. That's not going to work so well in a race that will only take a little more than twice as long as that.

After Way Too Cool I'll be running American River 50 in April and hopefully after that I'll be able to get onto all the trails here in Juneau and really dial up my training for Western States and beyond. I've also got a few local running pursuits that I'm really interested in this summer: scouting a route for a future 100 mile race and guiding tourists on trail runs. And hopefully in the next several weeks I might get a little more interested in posting something of potential value here on this blog. I tend to be more interested in this blog when I'm more interested in my running and over the past week I've become a lot more interested in my running so maybe sometime soon I'll actually write something about it. Or maybe not.

Enjoy the down time before the season begins. It looks like it will be a busy one for you. Keep the updates coming on the potential 100 miler. I will be in Wrangell around that time and would gladly sport the entry fee.

Geoff! Let me know when you plan on getting to Sacramento/Auburn for the Cool 50k!

Are you going to do any ultrarunning camps up in Juneau anytime? I'd like to come up and check out the trails and ridges up there.
